Amazing food, unique combinations creating wonderful flavors! I’m not even a foodie but can imagine that this would be heaven for them. Also reasonably priced given the quality of food. Definitely my go to for special occasions or when out-of-towners visit. Recommended to all.
We love Zinc. The food is always excellent and the service is consistent.
It’s our go to date night spot.
We have been to Zinc a number of times. It is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always great tasting and creative, the staff is incredibly nice and it is extremely close to the parking garage which is great when it is cold out.
The portions are appropriate and the price is reasonable. Some of our favorites include the duck nachos, the five cheese appetizer, the chicken and the salmon. Their desserts are a great ending to a wonderful meal.
If you go, ask for Jo the waitress. She is phenomenal.
This was the first time my business guest had dined at Zinc. He was incredibly impressed with the food, service and ambiance. I always am
Service was fantastic. Food was great!
All the food and service was exceptional but didnt have large enough portions
This is our third visit to this restaurant. This visit was the best dining experience. From the hostess, to the wait staff to the meal presentation, it was a memorable and exceptional experience. We began with the pork dumplings which had an interesting peanut sauce with a spicy kick. I had the duck rice bowl which was a delicious symphony of flavors and textures. Very creative. My Wife had the Montauk Striped Bass with an interesting sauce and whipped butternut squash. Fish cooked perfectly. Both dishes were served very hot and that is important. I highly recommend the chocolate and blood orange dessert---great for sharing. Very attentive wait staff. I never had to ask for water! Complimentary parking at the garage next door with ticket verification at the conclusion of your meal. We plan to return again for another great meal! Also---menu is changed seasonally and that makes Zinc unique!
This is the second time I’ve been to Zinc. The service and food were excellent. Noise level wasn’t bad though I have a little hearing loss which sometimes makes restaurants impossible. This was not the case with Zinc. Very attentive, friendly staff and I liked that the manager came to check on how everything was. We also weren’t rushed which was nice. I was lucky to find on the street parking - not sure I would have later in the week. Overall a lovely experience.
Flawless from teh moment we walked in. The greeting and seating set the tone for the evening as we were welcomed warmly despite showing up late. The kitchen has its spice box well in hand and each dish was a flavor surprise and composed to appeal to the eye. Who knew duck nachos could be done in such a refined and flavorful manner.
The service was just the right balance of attention but not intervention.
We can't wait to go back
We have eaten here many times and it is always delicious. This was no exception. We had the dumplings to begin the meal. I had the sea bass with butternut squash. It was great. The other meals were also delicious.
The best New American restaurant in CT.
Waitress was awesome!
Very good food and great service. We have dined there twice and haven't been disappointed
Service was phenomenal. Food was very good, not over the top, but very good. Highly recommend this place for a date, pre/post theatre.
The lettuce wraps were amazing but my gnocchi and my husbands hanger steak were nothing special at all.
Imaginative menu, excellent service, a great addition to New Haven food scene, very convenient to theaters
Great dinner location for Valentines Day.
Very abrupt service, very busy food more style over substance.
I go here every year for my birthday and valentines day. I go spiratically as well. Zinc has never been a dissapointment. I always leave full and happy.
For and service was excellent will be going back without a doubt !!
Zinc is one of those tried and true New Haven restaurants that never disappoints. The service and the quality of the food is always top notch. Even on Valentines Day, when the restaurant was especially busy, the food was excellent. The menu is eclectic- a bit Mediterranean, a bit Asian and always some American favorites. The pastry chef is also very gifted, especially when it comes to chocolate. Many reasons to return over and over.
Superb lunch: ambiance great, service excellent, menu options excellent, great wine /beer lists.
Overall, just a very enjoyable lunch - will definitely return for both lunch and dinner.
Great food, my boyfriend and I loved the food. All the flavours were amazing.
Still an Old Reliable in an increasingly Foodie Town
Stopped in for a quick dinner; Zinc came through yet again. Service prompt and friendly; food is always great. I'm a complete sucker for the fried spinach; could eat it all day every day. My tuna was great, as always. Consistency is a virtue, especially when its this good. Hope they stay around forever....
One of the top 3 in New Haven food is consistently excellent. Service is great. Recommendations always are on point whether it be wines or dinner's.
Its a Gem in Downtown... Keep up the good work It is appreciated !!!
The food was delicious! The homemade chocolates hit the spot! We will definitely be back for dinner!
Zinc is very nice and they have a friendly staff and pay attention to details. My wife and I enjoy dining at Zinc. Never had a complaint in the almost 4 years dining there.
It was important that we found a restaurant that offered healthy, delicious options for dinner for a special occasions, and this restaurant fit the bill. The food was absolutely delicious and the presentation of the food was gorgeous. It was a delight and the service was wonderful. The restaurant is worthy of all of the terrific reviews it receives.
Great meal and outstanding service. I had a business dinner and we were well attended to without being interrupted. The meal was fantastic and the back room although less interesting than the front rooms, they were good for a meeting and we never lacked for service. Back soon!
Reliably excellent with locally sourced ingredients. Lucky New Haven!
Went to celebrate fathers birthday. Chris was the best waiter I've ever had. Attentive and thoughtful. Great wine and food.
Great food as always.
We were running late for a show at the Shubert Theater (3 minute walk from the restaurant). The staff was extremely accommodating. They kept the food warm in the kitchen until my wife arrived. Service was spot on.
We head to Zinc anytime we're in New Haven. Creative, delicious meals, incl dessert, cocktails and wine. Unpretentious. It's definitely a favorite spot.
Outstanding dinner. Cheeses were a great appetizer. Both entries were delicious. Ample portions--enough to take him for lunches the next 2 days.
service was very spotty. server was very sweet and friendly but forgot to give me a menu for almost 30 minutes. they forgot our drinks then rushed us out during desert because the restaurant was crowded. we were there for a mini reunion and being rushed out was a horrible ending.
maybe a good spot for a quick dinner but definitely not a special occasion place.
The food, service and ambiance were all terrific. My wife had the Gnocchi and I had the Scottish salmon which were both delicious. We would definitely go back there again and try some new things on the menu. The noise level was not at all loud even though the restaurant was full. The service was really very good with the water glasses refilled regularly and the dishes cleared promptly.
Good wine list and the sommelier was helpful in choosing good wine by the glass. Food was above average. We both had vegetarian meals (gnocchi and veggie curry). Tasty!
I can't say enough about the perfect, unhurried , unworried lunch
with a lady friend. Everything was better than expected. Go !
Excellent service, really nice food, large portions.
